Earth Day Field Trip--Monk's Hill
There has been a slight change in plan…The EAG’s EARTH DAY field trip on Saturday 20th April, 2013 is now destined for Monk's Hill.
Meet us near the playing field at Table Hill Gordon (directions below) at 6:30am for move-off at 6:45am. The good news is that this trip will take us on an uphill climb...up to 596 feet (almost 182 metres). The better news is, this moderate-to-difficult climb rewards us with some of the most beautiful vistas of Antigua that you will ever behold. The best news is, the descent of this loop trail is fairly easy.
For this 3 hour hike, wear sturdy shoes, bring water and, if necessary, a light snack.
DIRECTIONS: To get to Table Hill Gordon, enter Liberta and drive to the wide corner where Ya So So bakery is located on your right (if coming from St. John’s). At this point, veer off the road that would have taken you towards English Harbour by taking the road slightly left of centre. Take this road to its end at the T-junction then turn left. Stay on this road until you get to the village, Table Hill Gordon, on your right side and park at the playing field nearby. Come and enjoy Antigua's natural environment with us.
